11765 excise skin wedge , ingrown nail

Tammy Posted Mon 18th of August, 2014 11:11:32 AM

Hello, the provider excised a toenail on both sides, but not on 2 toes. He coded it as 2 units but the insurance called & informed us they will not cover it due to the 2 units. What is the correct way to code this?

Thanks!!

Please provide the details of the removal...which foot, which toes. Not sure what you mean by "both sides, but not on 2 toes"

Thank you
